As pressure increases on healthcare organisations to deliver safety information in more effective and timely ways organisations are turning to IT solutions to help them deliver this. The popularity of social media among HCP’s has blurred the boundary between personal and professional lives with instances of breaches of patient confidentiality and inappropriate use on the increase. But is social networking all bad? Or can the networking technology common place in personal communications be harnessed to help Healthcare communicate more effectively?
